Everyone thinks it's a foregone conclusion that it will win some or even all SOTY honors but should it?
It's peak ULs on Melon was only 470k or something like that. That's a lot less than Tomboy which hit 550k and even now Pink Venom, which everyone considers a flop but is still doing 490k ULs at this time. And you can't say that all UL counts were down when Love Dive released because Still Life, Tomboy and That That all hit over 500k easily around the same time (Mar-May).
So is Love Dive overrated by Kpop fans? Did it not actually have the full GP support that a song like After Like has gotten (over 600k UL compared to only 470k), or Pink Venom, or even Attendant ?
Personally i would prefer that After Like get all the SOTY honors, it's definitely a better song.
